Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Vic­to­ria Vanier Ay­ers' Cliff

Last Fri­day, Or­ford MNA Pierre Reid and Ayer’s Cliff mayor Alex Van Zuiden in­au­gu­rated the newly ren­o­vated Tyler Park un­der sunny skies and sur­rounded by lots of smil­ing chil­dren, ea­ger to try out the new equip­ment which in­cludes some cool­ing wa­ter in­stal­la­tions.

“The re­de­vel­op­ment of Tyler Park al­lowed for the mod­erni­sa­tion of ex­ist­ing in­stal­la­tions and the addition of new ones that will without doubt please cit­i­zens of all ages as well as res­i­dents from neigh­bour­ing mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties. I am cer­tain that th­ese in­stal­la­tions will en­cour­age sport and re­cre­ation ac­tiv­i­ties and that Tyler Park will be­come a meet­ing place ap­pre­ci­ated by ev­ery­one,” said Mr. Reid.

The pro­ject con­sisted of bring­ing the skat­ing rink, which now dou­bles as a ten­nis court in the sum­mer, up to stan­dards, re­plac­ing the ag­ing play­ground equip­ment, adding wa­ter in­stal­la­tions, a wel­come build­ing and an am­phithe­atre.

The Min­istry of ed­u­ca­tion, sport and re­cre­ation pro­vided a grant of $340,000 to the mu­nic­i­pal­ity for this pro­ject.
